Week 4: Presenting numbers
Your guide, Janet, is back to introduce Week 4 of Basic science: understanding numbers.
Welcome to week four, the final week of Understanding numbers.
Last week you covered some of the basics of presenting numbers so they make sense, like rounding and percentages. This week, you'll learn about graphs, plotting them and interpreting them.
Graphs appear everywhere, and there is a reason for that. They’re often the key to understanding a science experiment or an issue, like changing rainfall patterns. A table of numbers can be difficult to decipher, but a graph tells the story visually, in a second. So you’ll spend quite a bit of this week looking at and plotting graphs.
And finally, there’s the End-of-Course Test. Please have a go. It will remind you of the many topics that you've encountered in this course. So enjoy the last week, and good luck with the test.
